We've been down this rabbit hole in the first half of this thread before I'm not going to address the merits of of the autogrouping tool we've done that before. I'm going to say we both agree on the cross server stuff which is why for alts/when I'm playing at 2am I'll have the same server only box ticked. But what are the alternative group finder tools? The <REDACTED>ty lfg (or the first incarnation of lfr) window where you flagged yourself as LFG with your role that no one ever used and failed so miserably it was the reason LFG was instituted in the first place? I remember when SWToR launched with that LFG tab and no one ever used it and people en mass called for a 'real LFG tool'. The LFG channel in chat? So we can party like its 2004? There has been multiple posts in this thread outlining how that's just a nostalgia machine when the reality is that it's both more frustrating and vastly more inefficient the the tool is. I agree the cross server stuff is bad (although that does leave low pop servers swinging in the wind that's a topic for another time) but the argument LFG leads to easier content is disjoint and all the Blizz quotes in the world don't change that. Blizz can't get away with hard dungeons and a LFG tool because they trained their player base poorly (You can literally chain pull quest mobs without stopping on clases with regening resources) and instituted the idea that everyone can clear all the content no matter what (I also think a huge part was not letting Wrath heroics scale with raid tiers/releasing new heroics with new raids for like 3 tiers. Which is what turned them into aoe snorefests, people like to forget they were still hard in early Wrath not BC brutal or vanilla grindy but still hard), there is no going back from those preconceptions. Wildstar is a clean slate, so long as they never bow to those conceptions that everyone should see all content with no effort and that content should be nerfed and also at endgame it's raid or die. LFG can work if you train people to play their class and use CC, hell it was even working in cata (for all the maoning how it was unpuggable of the two pre-gut heroics I remember failing: The first was a guild run where our healer had been lazy and was solely in questing greens so she'd just face plant the group and the other was an LFG run with a DK tank wearing agiliy mail and an agility pole arm that died every pull) till GC got spooked by the forum warriors and gutted heroics. Yes, In Wrath I used to RL our 25 man ICC alt runs and we often had to pug (case in point that I was RLing in the first place because our real RL had football on that night), If one of the other officers or respected member of my guild said a player was bad or a ninja (not that that mattered since we used master looter and manually /rolled for it) they got the boot instantly no ifs or buts. That was in Wrath that was after the community 'died' from LFG, server rep always matters. It's a normal WoW like cross server LFG tool with the option via tick box to make it same server only (added due to community demand).
